    5.8 Pointing

    Thanks for that Pirate. That sounds exactly like what is happening to me. I may as well get new shrouds as I have no idea how old they are anyway and I will redo and triple check the diamonds. Thanks a heap and good work testing the stretch of the shroud. I would have given up after they measured the same...

    5.8 Pointing

    Shrouds are in correct position. Have never looked at the mast rotation so will check that out next time we go out and wil also use the piece of string to check how straight the mast is. That is a super simple way to check. Dood, loving your form, hard to disagree. Thanks so far guys.

    5.8 Pointing

    Guys, need some advice. I recently bought Wild Thing (1555) which is a great boat and loving having a lighter one in comparison to my older 5.8 (628). First problem, I am sure (but you tell me) that I can point higher on port tacks than on starboard tacks. Is this possible and where would I look for something that is not symmetrical? The jib is attached at the same points on both sides etc. so I need someone to tell me where else this could be happening, or maybe it is just in my head and my brain is port bias. Second problem, I seem to be pointing much lower than all other cats on the water (haven't sailed against 5.8s down south as yet so I am comparing apples and oranges). The main seems to be running fine but the jib tell-tails are out. I have 2 attachment points for the jib block and currently I am in the front point. I am thinking that bringing it to the back attachment point will give me better angle and possibly fix my issue but then I guess I lose some 'bagging' effect and slightly decrease power. Thoughts? Cheers.

    Are Compasses Class Legal?

    Thanks for that. Does that apply for digital and analogue compasses? I wouldn't think there is a difference but you never know.
  5. The title says it all.... Anyone know? I cannot find anything to say they are not.

  9. Hello Nacra sailors/members in NSW. I have searched high and low to try and find information on the NSW Nacra Association and have come up completely dry apart from some minor posts about Great Lakes Sailing Club to mention that there was a State titles happening. Can anyone tell me what is/has been happening lately and who to contact to become a member etc? Thanks

    nacra 5.8 super series

    Emmessee, I'm asuming you won the 85 travellers trophy on 628? Just thought I should let you know that I have purchased 628 from the REV. I have renamed her again and am about to put some new graphics on which should look sweet. Hopefully I can take out the under 1200 category at the super series...
